A comedy? About cancer? That doesn’t seem like very good taste!
Script writer Will Reiser and director Jonathan Levine have managed to create a wonderful film. It’s a kind of romantic-comedy-drama about a young man with a severe form of cancer. Rather than marginalise this terrifying subject, 50/50 works because the humour allows us to open our eyes and learn a little bit about the ordeal that so many people and their families go through.
Stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, Anna Kendrick and Bryce Dallas Howard.
